The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The first 100 days of the administration of Luis Guillermo Solís plot the route for the next four years. Analysts describe them as crucial and evaluate the performance which will raise the government and scenarios about what the country can expect.
Those first 100 days will be featured by ten recommended measurements about Solis by unions and the cooperative movement.
According to the appointed Minister of the Presidency, Melvin Jimenez, the “Movement of the Ten Measures”, as he calls the integrated groups of syndicates, cooperatives, religious movements, productive sectors and youth group, will be decisive in the process of the 100 days, for which meetings with representatives will maintain. The next meeting will be on Monday next week.
The movement generated two documents, one with six themes which are divided into ten proposals at national level and another one with a dozen other actions to rescue the Costa Rican Social Security Fund (CCSS).
The axes are:
Costa Rican Social Security
Employment and decent work
“Ensuring national energy sovereignty, strengthening the ICE RECOPE and the cooperative sector, enabling the realization of strategic investments and alternative energy generation. In this framework the development and expansion of a national biofuels industry must promote. It contributes to the security and energy efficiency, climate change mitigation, environmental conservation, reactivation of the agricultural sector, employment generation, growth and local development.
Jimenez said they are open to dialogue and to hold meetings with various groups, so that an agreement is reached by consensus.
“We are open to all sectors, this week we have a meeting with the movement called The Ten Dimensions. We will reunite with the indigenous sector, the environmental, but this would begin with more national issues. But we want to land the proposed poverty alleviation and generation of employment and production,” Jimenez said.
On the first day in office, Solis will adopt three important measures that have to do with infrastructure, cabinet and reorganization issues and the fight against poverty.
However, according to Jiménez, such proposals are under the heel of a process of legal analysis to determine whether they are viable and what would be the most effective way to make them known.
In addition, each of the ministers and the leaders will make a diagnosis of their institution to determine which are the main situations and in which situations the outgoing government left the country.
Solis has made clear that the area of infrastructure will be a priority in his administration and says that they are in constant meetings with specialists in the subject institutions.
In this field, the new president said that one of the first actions is the involvement of about 20 culverts that could be at risk of overflow or collapse, so their attention will be paramount.
